RetroWorld Expo 2019 was by far the best show we have had yet! Feedback from attendees and exhibitors were overwhelmingly positive and we felt that 2020 was going to be even way better. Unfortunately, we had to cancel due to Covid 19 safety precautions.

RetroWorld Expo attendance in 2019 was over 6,000 attendees and continues to grow annually. Attendees come from all over the country with majority coming from the surrounding areas CT, MA, NY, RI, VT and NH. Our attendees rate RWX as one of their favorite expos in the area and many come back year after year.

In our year end surveys our attendees indicate that the number one reason they come back to RWX is for the marketplace. Our marketplace is made up of over 100 vendors with a mix of video games, tabletop, toys, pop culture, indie developers and artists. Exhibitors who come back each year say that RWX is one of the best expos they go to. We sell out of exhibitor space each and every year.

If you need power to your booth it can be purchased directly through the CT Convention Center ( for $80 per 5 amp outlet. Hard line Internet is $45 and Wifi Internet is $25.

We use Demers Exposition Services for all set up such as pipe & drape, chairs and tables. They are on site the weekend of the event for any additional needs that you might have such as additional tables and chairs or other items that may need to be rented. Our main point of contact is Ron Christensen if you have any special rental requests

We strive to make each exhibitors experience a good one and work with each and every exhibitor to make sure they have a great weekend. If you have any questions regarding being an exhibitor please contact Kris Krohn at
